Approve Phrases

The next step is to approve your content for translation and publication.

Localize detects all phrases on your application; this includes dynamic content on and added to your application (including ajax content, alerts, popups, etc.)

In order to know which phrases you want translated you must approve them for translation. If you do not want a phrase translated we recommend clicking on the red block mark; phrases left in pending will also not get translated. Once you've approved a set of phrases, they’ll be moved into the Published bin (or In-Progress bin if this is feature is enabled).

1) Go to the Phrases tab in your project.

2) Under the "Filter By State" tab on the left, click on "Pending". These are the phrases that need to get approved.

3) Click on the green check mark to approve the phrase for translation. Click on the red block if you would like to block the phrase for translation.

Bonus: Use the select all boxes to select and take action upon multiple phrases per page.

Once you've approved a phrase from the Pending page, the phrase moves into Published for translation.

If you turned on automatic machine translations, machine translation will instantly be ordered and added to each phrase.

Then all your active translated phrases will be published live onto your website instantly.

If you do not have automatic machine translations activated, the phrase will not be published live until a translation is added. You can add your own translations or order human translations from one of our third party translation providers.
